An Example of a Scammer Targeting Ladies

Every single day, we have applications for members to our site from criminals who seek to prey on our members and steal from our members.  Usually, we have become quite good at recognizing their applications for membership.  And we deny them membership.  But sometimes we miss one of these criminals, and by mistake we allow them to be members of the site.  Here is an example of one of the criminals who joined our site about 1 week ago and tricked us.

The profile was for “Frederick Bundchen” who claimed to be from Elizabethtown, Kentucky, United States.  This is what he wrote in his profile:

I am patient,generous, kind, and loving. I am always upbeat, have a positive attitude about most things and I like to have fun. I like football,movies,swimming,dancing,cooking,singing in the choir at church,listening to music,shopping,taking walks at night and looking at the stars,watching the sunset,eating at a very nice restaurant and going to live concerts,theater, movies and art. I love to travel, and to go sightseeing. I love museums, romantic dinners,…..And I am a fun loving person who loves to laugh and make others laugh. I always try to enjoy the simple things in life,and not take anything for granted.I’ve a naturally curious mind and love to learn about peoples, cultures, and so many other things…I love romantic dinners,

The profile included pictures of a man, a woman, and a boy about 5 years old.

We approved this application for membership in the site.  Then the member upgraded the membership by paying using a credit card and began contacting members sending ladies his email address federickbundchen@yahoo.com.  When one of our lady members wrote to the man, he responded by claiming he wanted to hire a nanny and was going to help the lady get a visa to the USA to be the nanny.  Here are the emails he sent:

Hello Dear,

 

Thanks for your reply and interest in the job I am really willing to get a Driver and Nanny down to the US soon and I told you that i am going to Pay you 3,000Sdollars a month and that will be for the Up keep of Driver and Nanny to where ever. I have Duplex Building with 8 Bedrooms and 2 living rooms and that is all I Want you to take care of You’ll have a room to yourself with a complete Working system with internet facilities which Will enable you communicate with your friends And Family daily.
The reason why I need a driver and Nanny is because I will be moving out of city due to official duty .Now I have to go on a naval course for 6 months And I need a Driver and Nanny in aupair to take care of my kids I understand that you might not have your Visa processed yet and I have already discussed With the United state Immigration service about My intention to get the service of a Driver and Nanny to Take care of my kids while I am on national Duty…..Since I am a Naval officer and I hardly Stay at home…So this is how I intend to make Everything work…
I will give you the email of the immigration Office as well as my Naval license ID number so That they will know that I directed you to the Immigration office for the processing of your Visa…..I will take good care of your departure and arrival to the US when your Visa processing is Completed…But you will have to pay for your Visa registration fee yourself which cost about $225US.
This is because The Immigration has mandated it that the Applicant will address the Visa Registration fee because the payment Receipt will be attached to your papers and The name on it will be used for the processing of all your Papers….and when the processing get done,it will be sent to you via a courier service.More over alert will send to US immigration,US embassy and POEA in your home country as soon as your visa is ready and you will be call for interview .The reason why you have to pay for your Visa registration Yourself is because the immigration office has made it Compulsory that it is the applicant who pays for Her visa registration because I have once been Cheated by a Filipino whom I paid all her expense And when he got his papers, he did not show up to me…So the thing is this, i am going to help you mak sure that you get your visa at all cost. With my influence……I really need a honest and sincere person to work for me…. I think the registration fee for Asia foreigners hoping to work in the US is 225USdollars so that is all they will ask you to pay and the rest will be my doing about 4,700USdollar …I will check out Philippine Work abroad agencies and i will make sure all is set For you. This is all that I have planned down so if you are OK with it, do mail me back. But if you will ask Me to pay your Visa Registration fee for you, please Don’t write me back.Contact me back only if you are ready for this or Maybe I should just get someone else as this is Very important and urgent…Please get back to Me by email only.. I will be away for 6 months and you Will be the one taking care of my safety.
Mr Frederick B Underway Navy.
US Naval Officer

and also this message:

Thanks for your Kind message and interest to Go further with this offer.Immigration will only ask you to pay for visa registration fee which is $225US,I will be the one to pay for your visa placement and airfare total cost $4700US…now I am convinced that I have someone who Will be able to take care of my safety and my home….I am going to write the immigration office to notify them that you will be sending Application for Visa and other traveling Papers and i will have them linked up with you……

Mr Frederick B
US Naval Officer 140 barbara circle,Elizabethtown, Kentucky 42701

We were informed of this by one of our careful members who was suspicious about the email she had received.  When we investigated, we suspended the profile of the member immediately because it is clearly a criminal fraud.

As we have written previously many times, do not ever send money to anyone you have never met in person. This applies to men as well as to women.  If you ever have any of our members attempt to ask you for money, please write to us immediately so that we can investigate.

Over time, as our site becomes more popular, we know that more and more scammers will seek to break in.  We see criminal scammers claiming to be from Philippines, USA, Africa, England, China.  We continue to change the way our site works to make it more and more difficult for the scammers to take advantage of our members.  We believe that we have the largest percentage of sincere members of any Asian dating site, and the smallest percentage of insincere, scammers, and criminals, thanks to our custom improvements to our system, our dedication to educating our members about these issues, and to our members who immediately inform us when any other member attempts to trick them.  If you are curious sometime, you may want to visit and join some of the other dating sites and see for yourself how many criminals there are on the internet trying to fool other persons.

Remember, take your time when getting to know anyone, whether it’s someone you meet in person or on our site or on any other internet site.  And never send money to anyone you haven’t met in person.

**UPDATE 8/31/2010**

We just had another scammer who joined our site with a similar “nanny scam” scenario… As with some previous scammers, this member had a profile showing a man with a child.  As with previous apparently-male scammers, the user upgraded his membership with a payment, then sent the following message:

Hello,
My name is james evans,i am sorry for contacting you this way but i believed you are good christain.Am a single father with a son named Dennis Evans,i worked as a construction engineer but self employed and i lived in london.United kingdom.  So am in need of a babysitter for my son and i will be paying you the sum of 500 pounds weekly as your wages,so if you have interest in helping me look after my son and you do have a valid passport.  Send me a message me on my id james_evans00001@yahoo.com for more details of the job and do not take this message as insult if its looks beyond your standard.

James

We have not yet heard of any of our ladies who has fallen prey to any of these scammers who have tried to infiltrate our site.  We hope that we continue with that record, and in order to do so we commit to continuing to educate all of our members about the fraudsters who attempt to join our site, and we commit to continue our high degree of vigilance of our members who apply to join our site.  If at some time, an honest person has his or her profile suspended, we apologize for this.  If this happens to you, please calmly contact us through our feedback form and/or email so that we can investigate closely and fix any error we might make.  We do our best to identify suspicious profiles and research them carefully to suspend them as soon as possible.  Now after reading some of the stories, we hope you understand why we are so careful, occasionally even to a fault.

 

We believe the same scammer uses the following email addresses as well:  livinggod11@hotmail.com, bestofb@ymail.comgodownmylife@live.com,u.ktraveltorism@gmail.combestbetter10@hotmail.com.

  1. What exactly identifies the gentleman ‘James’ in the second post as a scammer ?

    If I were to look for a nanny – which I actually need – christian filipina would be a great site to do this.
    Also, having a guest from the Philippines come as a nanny first, getting to know her, is not a bad idea.

    Thus, in this case, what is a nanny scam scenario ?

  2. Hi Ed,
    Please go to your favorite search engine website and type in “nanny scam” if you would like to learn about this topic. As for looking for a nanny on our site, no, I’m sorry, that’s explicitly against our rules, and if you try it and are reported, you’d be suspended immediately just like any other member who violates our terms of service.

  3. Hi, Jen:

    Thanks for posting and alerting us all on the issue on nanny scams.

    I agree. Nanny scams are prevalent in cyberspace. Some scammers target women who they perceive wrongly or not as desperate. This Christian dating website protects Filipina women like me who may be potential targets by clearly and explicitly prohibiting anyone from posting ads seeking nannies.

    This is not a proper forum for those ads. This is a Christian dating website created to bring ladies and gentlemen bonded by Christian values together in their search for friendship, love, and marriage.

    More power!

  5. what about scammers that target men

    Comment by srs1978 — September 5, 2010 @ 12:45 am

  6. Hi Anna, I’m glad we saved you some money. These scammers are quite sophisticated. They work in networks, they have access to stolen credit cards, they use proxy servers to mask their real locations… by the way, where exactly, and to whom exactly, were you instructed to send money? Please post that here or let us know using our contact form and we will post it.

    By the way, srs, we have many posts about scammers targeting men – you can see all posts on this topic at http://christian-filipina.com/blog/tag/scammers/ or you can read all our blog posts (which is recommended) by clicking at the top of the page, the title, which says “Christian Filipina Blog”.

  7. Hello,
    Glad that i opened this site when i searched on the name of the person that actually telling me to hire a nanny, because i had myself joined in one of the dating websites online [...], but was surprised when i received an email to a certain frederick bundchen, so i got cutrious to the point that he always sent me messages urging me to be his employee, so before i did some stupid things, i searched on his name and God lead me to this site where i read on the blog the same content that ive seen in my letter that Mr.Frederick Bundchen had been sending..Now i did some thorough research and he if one should apply for work in the unite states everyhting should be processed here not in anywhere.He is an intelligent man who try to extort moneys in terms of Visa registration..Hoping that my revelation could also help others who will be victimized by this man and other groups..God is so good he always works in ways to protect people who just want to be happy and meet hopefully the desires of their heart!God Bless and More Power!

  9. Thank you Jen and also your staff for having the courage to post this info. These are despicable people that try to fool earnest, sincere women with a “Nanny scam”. Also no Govt agency will ever use a gmail account like the poster tried with usimmigration. That is such a joke. But those not familiar could be fooled. I appreciate the service and protection you do your best to provide.

    Comment by Mark — September 14, 2010 @ 1:53 pm

  10. hi jen!
    Thank you for posting. My auntie is a victim of this scam.She started having a conversation with this federick bundchen. The problem is she already gave 225 dollars thru western union..blah blah and the immigration told her that after 2 weeks the visa will be released. And so it happened they are showing two ids i think and saying that my auntie is scheduled for interview on poea this sept. and that she should send another 330+400=730 us dollar to send her all the requirements that’s on their hands. we e-mailed federick bundchen about this and ask if he can pay first the fee, but up to now he is not answering the message. And this is the time that i’ve search the net and find the same situation as yours. What do you think is the best thing to do about this.Thanks!

    Comment by sheril — October 1, 2010 @ 5:38 am

  13. Beware also of a man who call himself David Lim Wilson he too is a scammer, he uses fake photos and ask money to pay the parcel for the package he sent. He also call your cellphone to make it; seems true. (he’s black, his accent tells what race he is) My friend experienced that but good that she’s too smart discerning the main motive of that man.

    thanks

    Comment by Frederick — October 4, 2010 @ 8:42 am

  15. Hi Patrick, Sorry to hear that you don’t trust us. If you’d like to find our for yourself, just join one of the other dating sites as a 40-60-year-old woman and I can assure you that scammers will contact you. It’s very rare in our site because of the way we design and manage the site to be unproductive for scammers, but it’s very common in every other dating site. After you’ve tried this, we welcome you to come back and contribute what you learn.

    Comment by Christian Filipina — October 9, 2010 @ 1:01 am

  16. Hi Kimberly, sorry to hear about your auntie’s mistake. What you should do is tell her that she lost the 225 dollars already to the scammer and that there is no light at the end of that tunnel. It’s time for her to let go and accept the mistake she made. We welcome her to create a profile at our site instead, and she can feel free to contact us using our contact/feedback form before sending money to anyone she meets online. Our feedback form is located at the bottom of every page of the main site christian-filipina.com and enables you to send us a message directly.

  21. Hi Renz, Sorry to hear that. Yes, we are very familiar with that type of scam based on what we have learned from our members. We don’t have much of that type of fraud at our site because we make it very difficult for scammers to use our site in that way. We make it impossible to share contact information between free level members, and we personally review in depth every single membership profile, especially the upgrades. We also try to educate our members about issues like these. We encourage you to read all our blog entries, and we hope that you can recover from this mistake and not lose your faith in all people or God.

    Comment by luna E. Boquilon — November 20, 2010 @ 7:40 am

  25. It is a good idea to get to know your matches friends and family, and take it slow. I believe in courtship, so even though doing a modified version for online dating sites is tough, it is good. I’ve been on several online dating sites over the years, and though I haven’t found Miss Right yet, I have gotten to know some of my match’s parents, pastor, and friends and that helped validify her as real. Not 100% fool proof, I’m sure, but add this to any and every hoofing and research, we all can eliminate a lot of needless headaches.

    So, even if you do not choose to do courtship, at least get to know people your match knows, and let your match get to know yours. As a guy, I start with the woman’s father or father figure, if possible, and then go from there. Figure out a system that will safeguard you. I’ve come across many scammers on dating sites over the years, and I can usually pinpoint them early on in our conversations. They all sound basically the same. 9 times out of them, they involve money— even when money is not mentioned, just implied. Better be safe than sorry, too! Even the slightest doubt, don’t continue contact. Report immediately.

    Comment by BibleMan — November 27, 2010 @ 11:06 am

  26. This is very alarming to our fellow filipina. The site specifically says DATING SITE not job hunting site. I feel a bit of insult with the nanny scam issue for filipinas are highly talented, well skilled and hardworking passionate ladies not just someone to be look for to take care of their precious ones. These people should have some respect to who we really are and what we are capable of doing. We are more than just housekeepers we are intelligent individuals and they should see that above all.

    Comment by evee — December 14, 2010 @ 2:03 am

  27. hi,i’m so embarrassed to say that i, too, have been scammed before. I was registered to another online dating site. The name used by the scammer was Alex Morgan (email add:heavenheartalex). He claimed to be an engineer working at an oil rig in Scotland. He also claimed that he has a 12-year old daughter by the name of Rita who lives with his missionary mom in Africa. It’s a long story but let me get to the point where he asked for money ($50)supposedly as my gift to his daughter Rita. I really have a soft spot for children maybe because I am a teacher and a single mom, so I gave in to his request. I sent the money through western union also, to his alleged friend by the name of Helwani Wahab in this address: 51 Lake Street Warri City Delta State, Nigeria. I was so ashamed of myself that I had nightmares for days. I felt like I am the stupidest person on earth to have believed such lies. What I am scared about is that he might use my name also to fool others and do the same trick he did to me. I have cancelled my registration to that site and registered recently to christian filipina website. I hope this time things would be different. I hope to find HONEST and GOD-FEARING friends through this website.

    Comment by James — December 25, 2010 @ 5:29 pm

  31. Hi James, We are sorry to hear that you have not yet found your soulmate yet. Also while I’m surprised that you read this article eight months ago (it was posted August 31), the interesting thing is that we don’t have much new to report. We still regularly get scammers like this who attempt to join our site, but we do not approve their profiles. They have tried more sophisticated tactics to get their profiles approved, but we have become more sophisticated also in identifying them. However, we believe that the problems like these are growing more frequent on other sites where the managements are not as dedicated to maintaining civility. Hence if you read the comments you will read the reports from ladies who are reporting on what they have found on other sites. We hope you meet some quality friends on our site. We do, however, suggest that you calm down your tone, as none of us on this page are crying or bellyaching as much as you are. We are all sharing information so that others can be more informed and make intelligent choices, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Merry Christmas and God bless you.

    Comment by Kenneth Wilson — January 10, 2011 @ 10:13 am

  36. Hi Kenneth, We receive applications daily from persons in Africa posing as both men and women in many types of scam operations. To be honest, they are the the least sophisticated, making them easiest for us to identify in the initial profile review, so they almost never make it past our approval process. However, occasionally we do make a mistake, so we work hard to help educate our members to be able to spot the various kinds of fraud and report them. Please always remember that if think something is suspicious, please report it in detail immediately using the feedback link on the main site, and mention the user number.

  37. Married a filipina in 1995 after writing to her for 18 months. (Over 200 letters and cards)She asked for a divoice after 14 years of marriage. I are still friends with her and her parents, who we brought to the U.S. They are wonderful people and I love them dearly. I love website dating, because of choices and the ability to chat on the net and get to know people. I have visited my fiancee in the Philippines after getting to known her on the net. I found her to be the same kind and decent person. She doesn’t ask for money and I send funds for our daughters, who love me as I love them. I have had an older filipino met her and check her out and she pasted with flying colors. She is what she says she is..I met several ladies on your site. A couple were I think scammers, but did not report them. If you want to meet some real pro scammers go to the Russian dating sites. I had a bad experience one girl, but did not lose any money. Did a google search and found she was part of crime gang. Be careful. Dave

    ——————————————————————————–

    Hello,

    How are you? Thanks for the reply to my job offer and the interest in my family.I would like to see your Curriculum Vitae (CV)and also your scanned passport copy.Truly i need a foreign Nanny,i know that there are a lot of Nannies in the UK here but its just that i need a Nanny from outside,that is caring,loving,motherly carefree and well determined,that can take good care of my kids for me but with the recommendation from you and that is the more reason I may need your services,hopefully you will be my kid’s Nanny and do according to your words.

    I reside in London and do not get worried about any documents(work Permit and Visa),a travel agency here in the UK will handle that for you as per your visa just scan&send the copy of your international passport and CV through email to them,they will apply for visa on your behalf in the UK Home Office and when the visa is ready the UK Embassy in your country will call on you so that they can endorse the visa on your original passport.If you have any other traveling agency you could also use that.

    I love my kids so much and would not toy with them.They are the apple of my eyes.I work because of them and am willing to pay any amount to give them the best in the world.You would be needing to settle the Visa Procurement yourself because i paid for 2 Nannies in the past few months which they did not turn up but went somewhere else after their visa was approved and that is why i vowed that any Nanny that i will employ will make half of expenses by himself/herself.Hope you understand how i mean.I need a very serious person and the job is available right now.Also,i use to have a Nanny and she spent 2 years with us,but she got married and relocated to the United states,so i need a replacement ASAP.

    Your duties are as follows:

    1-Supervise breakfast with the children in the morning and get them off to school (Collect my 2KIDS of ages 3yrs old and 5year and half on from school at 3..40pm.)
    2-Some Housework/washing/ironing as required on a daily basis
    3-Supervise homework, music practice and fun activities or take children to after school activities.
    4-Prepare and cook an evening meal for everyone at about 6.30-6.45 Up to two evenings child minding per week.
    5-Weekends and Bank holidays would be free that there will not be much duties to carry out.
    6-Occasional weekend work would be offered by prior negotiation. I normally leave for
    work at 7.00am and get back at around 6.30pm although some flexibility is useful.
    I am offering a live-in position with full board (we eat well in this house!)
    1-Separate Toilet and Bathroom.
    2-TV,different types of video machines.
    3-Personal computer already Internet on. e.t.c for you and i will make sure everything goes on well with you, with my kids.

    Don’t worry about the United Kingdom,it’s a nice place to stay and i hope you will enjoy staying here with my family and you will have the access to internet, In fact i have a personal PC at home for myself but my kids usually play games on their own PC, i will get you a computer to start using for your own use.All expenses made by you will be refunded immediately you get here.If you would be using the travel agency i would be recommending my traveling agent to you.

    Contact Person: David Williams
    Email Address : trafalgartraveltourltd@mail.com

    Do get back to me as soon as possible with your resume and we take it from there.

  43. Hi, YES, that is definitely the same scammer. I think we successfully eliminated him from our site a month ago and he has not been back, so you must have gotten in contact with him from a different site?

    Comment by Christian Filipina — February 3, 2011 @ 9:51 am

  45. btw…i had encountered too a certain Mr. Dennis Brown whom i met in Seniorfriendfinder,
    he introduced himself as single dad and he said he need somebody to take care of his son, thats she works in UK Atlas Mining…etc..and he was persistent to sent me a present (anything i like, like jewelries upon his 4 days trip in canada)and was asking me to give him my address..i sensed that this guy sounds like a crook..so i didnt bother to communicate with him…

    Comment by jhosa — February 8, 2011 @ 9:16 pm

  46. hi! I am also a victim of scammers named Dr Thomas Adelaide and Mike Stone who offered me a “nanny’ job [from a different site]. I had a doubt when they asked me to pay 50% for a visa registration fee and they will shoulder the other 50%. Im just thankful I visited this site and found out that I have the same experience with the other who were scam victim.

    Comment by miscianhie — April 4, 2011 @ 10:10 pm

  47. Please beware also of the scammer named Fernando Louis who offered work in Star Cruise Job in Madrid Spain and Mrs. Jennifer Franklyn of London offered work in Oxford Hotel.

    Comment by miscianhie — April 4, 2011 @ 10:19 pm

  49. Hi Gardenia, I’m not clear from your note whether you met this person on our site or on another site. If it was on our site, please inform us immediately of the user number of the person via our feedback form or email. If it was another site, I can tell you that it sounds unlikely to be a genuine offer. It sounds a lot more like a scam from the limited information provided.

    Comment by cherry — October 13, 2011 @ 12:37 am

  53. Hi Cherry, Yes, there are many kinds of scammers. Remember to never send money to someone you have never met in person. And of course never send money to any third party like an agency either. Don’t be gullible. Be careful. We are quite good at keeping these scammers off our site here at Christian Filipina, but at many sites there are more scammers than real members. It’s a shame. Careful out there!

    Comment by Christian Filipina — October 13, 2011 @ 3:27 am

  54. Thanks for this blog.

  63. Sorry but it sounds to me like a scam. I sure hope you did not meet this person on our site. A few times criminals like this have managed to slip past our manual profile reviews, and as soon as we caught them we suspended the profiles and emailed all our members who had been contacted by them to alert them to the scammer. However, there are hundreds of criminals trying out schemes like this on other sites, saying they are from Nigeria, UK, Malaysia, etc.

    Comment by Christian Filipina — April 26, 2012 @ 9:20 pm

  71. i was almost a victim of this..luckily i am copying the referral code when i pasted in in google and found out it was a scam..thanks for the information..here goes the mail..he got also picture in the quepasa with his kid..
    From: David Young
    To: y_rose05@yahoo.com
    Sent: Saturday, May 12, 2012 9:29 PM
    Subject: THANKS FOR CONTACTING BACK ROSE.

    Thanks for your reply and interest in the job…..I am really willing to get a Nanny down to the U.S soon and i told you that i am going to pay you Two Thousand,Five Hundred U.S Dollars a month and that will be for the up keep of my two girls, Christina is 4 and Cheryl is 9.
    I have a home with 3 bedrooms and a living room and that is all i want you to take care of…I also have a small garden at the back of my house where my ids play but i intend to get a gardener to take care of that for me as well so it will not be your duty to keep it clean.
    I understand that you might not have your visa processed yet and i have already discussed with the United States Immigration service about my intention to get the services of a nanny, a garner and a cook to take care of my kids and my home while i am on national duty….Since i am a Naval officer and i hardly stay home…My former nanny is now old and retired and my former gardener has returned to further his study in Georgia state University. They are both from the Philippine.

    So this is how i intend to make everything work…

    I will give you the email of the immigration office as well as a referral code that they gave to me so that they will know that i directed you to the immigration for the processing of your visa….The United states Immigration issues visa in a different way from the embassy and they operate more faster. you can not apply directly to the immigration for your visa but an employer can help you do that so that is why i have the privilege of helping you secure your visa through the immigration.
    I am going to Book for your flight to come down to the US when your Visa processing is completed and your visa is ready and sent to you…But you will have to pay for your visa registration fee yourself because it is mandatory for you to do that…I am allowed to pay for every other necessary bills like your paper work,travel documents and even your flight but you will have to pay for your visa registration because your name will be needed to appear on the immigrations database and that is the information they will use to start your visa processing… I want you to also know that we can continue with this only if you can afford the registration fee. It is easy for me to pay it but i am not allowed to and if i am caught doing that for you, you might be banned for 10 years from entering into the United States and we do not want such situation… i am just explaining all this to you so you can understand what i mean well…and when the processing get done, it will be sent to you via a courier service. That is the way the immigration operates.

    So the thing is this, i am going to help you make sure that you get your visa at all cost..with my influence……I really need a honest and sincere person to work for me….I will also send you pictures of my kids and me as time goes on…..
    I think the registration fee for Asia and Europe foreigners hoping to live and work in the US is Two hundred and sixty five Dollars so that is all they will ask you to pay and the rest will be my doing….

    In addition to everything that i have explained, you will have your own room with a computer with internet facilities on it, and a television with cable channels too.. your room is very close to my kids room so that you can have easy access to them. you will also need to work from Mondays to Fridays and my sister will come and take the kids by Friday morning and return them by Sunday evening so you will have the weekends free to yourself… I usually pay salaries on the 25th of every month but if you prefer a different payment date, we can sit and discuss that okay… You will not need to pay any tax after receiving your salary because i am a government official and i have a cut from taxes so the government pays my taxes.

    I will also get in touch with some travel agency in Asia…i will check out Philippine work abroad agencies and i will make sure all is set for you.
    Contact me back if you are ready for this or maybe i should just get someone else as this is very important and urgent to me…
    I am traveling soon and i don’t want my kids to be alone….Hope to hear from you soon…Please get back to me by email only..
    I will be away for 6 months and you will be the one taking care of my kids and my sister will be coming to check on the kids on weekends and i am divorced….

    Mr David young
    Royal Navy. USA
    Naval Officer
    ________________________________________

    Ok….now i am convinced that i have someone who will be suitable to take care of my kids and my home….I am going to get in touch with the immigration office and i will have them linked up with you…..they already provided me with the opportunity to bring in 3 foreigners to the US and they have given me the serial code which i am going to give to you..and you will send it to them by email and they will know that you are my client and i referred you to them…I will give you their email and you will email them and tell them you were referred for your visa processing and immigration licensing from Mr David Young of the US Naval force…
    And then you tell them your immigrant serial code which is Ref: 3829-44632-us-28891-ph And include your full name and address….
    I am trying to make sure everything get arranged quick and soon enough..
    This is the immigrations office E-mail…. united.immigration.us@gmail.com ..
    Contact them as soon as possible and let me know when you have done that…

    Take care
    Mr David Young.

  78. That was the exact email I received. From a scammer using an alias of Ana Jacobson. I was about to give all my details but good thing my daughter checked the email and the details they provided, we both work with a big travel company and we happened to be affiliated to the company they are posing as their agency. By then we realized it was a scam. Beware ladies, even you never sent money they could also use your Identity so do not send Important Personal Identification details.

  79. Scams like that are already wide-spread for over years, hope FBI or Interpol could do something about it.

  82. Immigration office don’t have @gmail mail accounts. Moreover, is Mr.Whatever was so rich and was willing to pay a $2000 salary and $4700 for tickets and visa, then he surely could wire the $225 for “immigration”.
    A little vigilance and some common sense can go a long way in detecting scammers.

  89. Hello….I’m mary and thank you I happened to open this site and read the Nanny scam. I am about to fall prey on this until I read the letter, exactly the same sent to me by a person allegedly employed in the US Naval force and an officer at that. The email add she is using is mrsemily79@yahoo.com. The name she uses is Emilym Zhirchov, residing at 2 Putnam PI clifton, New Jersey, 07011, USA. Too good I opened the sites she directed me and I found out that the letter she sent was exactly a photocopy of what is published under your “Scam” letters. Thanks God, I was saved.
